The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner gave to understand that in the short term, the Austrian group is not going to let Carlos Sainz in the camp of the competitors.
In 2017, the son of two-time champion of the world rally championship holds its third season in the Toro Rosso. The Spaniard does not hide that wants to be in a top team as quickly as possible, but Red Bull Racing has long-term contracts with Daniel Riccardo and max Verstappen.
Last year Sainz was invited to Renault, but the leadership of the Red Bull stopped the negotiations.

“Carlos has a contract with Red Bull, which brought him into F1 and invested in his career – said Horner in an interview with Movistar. – Currently, we do not intend to let go of some of our riders. Carlos progresses, and at Toro Rosso, which gives him a good chance. He is still very young, but we really appreciate it and don’t want to lose.”
Horner also denied the rumours that Daniel ricciardo in 2018 could go to Ferrari and thus free the place at Red Bull Racing for Sainz.
